Peyronie’s disease is a wound-healing disorder. This means that injury or damage to the penile tissues, particularly within the outer penile tissues, activates a scarring process that goes well beyond the normal healing process. There is an excess buildup of collagen in the penis that leads to the formation of scar-like tissue called plaques.
Now, you may sometimes wonder if you did something wrong or didn’t do something to prevent it. Neither is likely the case.
Penile plaques develop in response to a significant trauma or a series of smaller ones like those during normal intercourse. They can lead to changes in the shape of the penis that may include curvature, indention (e.g., hour glass shape) or shortening (e.g., loss of length) and in some cases, these changes can make it difficult, or even impossible, to engage in sexual intercourse.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call a Med Spa Services provider for a private consultation. There are many treatment options available.
